The third installment of Danny Boyle‘s 28 franchise is coming. 28 Years Later will release in summer 2025, Sony Pictures announced Friday.

The film, directed by Boyle with a script by Alex Garland, will be a follow-up to 2002’s 28 Days Later and 2007’s 28 Weeks Later. When news of the film first made headlines earlier this year, there were also reports that Boyle and Garland hope to launch a new trilogy with this installment.

Boyle and Garland will also produce, with original producer Andrew Macdonald and Peter Rice returning as well, and Bernie Bellew joining the group. Cillian Murphy is also returning as an executive producer.

Murphy starred in the original film, then largely still unknown as an actor. He played a bicycle courier who woke from a coma to discover the world overrun with a highly contagious virus that turns humans into raging killers. The second film depicted military efforts to maintain a safe zone from the virus in London, with two siblings searching for a photograph of their mother.

The original film was a surprise and profitable hit, but more notably helped to revitalized the zombie horror genre, which subsequently galvanized support for the last two decades of brain-eating, apocalyptic entertainment at the box office. World War Z, Zombieland, The Walking Dead, and Zack Snyder’s remake of Dawn of the Dead along with his recent Army of the Dead, all followed 28 Days‘ path.

Plot details for the third installment are still unknown. The film will release in theaters June 20, 2025.
